Athlete For Life Program Outlines
Program 1: Student-Athlete Transition from High School to College (Six Week Program and Full Day Event)
Over a six week period, this program is designed for High School Senior Student-Athletes embarking on their upcoming transitions to college. Each week, Omari Faulkner will lead a 60 minute workshop focused on Athlete For Life foundational elements (balance, time management, strategically building strong networks, recognizing and capitalizing college resources, mental wellness/transcendence). Based on personal experience, Omari will provide invaluable guidance on a healthy and successful transition from playing sports as a high school athlete to an entirely new role as a college athlete.
The six week program will be concluded with a full day event, launching recently graduated high school student-athletes into their journey as a college student-athlete. During the full day event, a one hour workshop is dedicated to parents. This particular transition has a strong impact on parents, and Omari provides them with insight on their imperative role for student-athletes.
Program 2: High School Student-Athletes’ College Preparation (Four Week Program)
This program is designed to mentor high school student-athletes during a pivotal time of their student-athlete career – the college selection process and preparations that follow. Omari will conduct a two hour workshop focused on guiding student-athletes through selecting a collegiate school. Early on, student-athletes are faced with offer letters and a life-changing decision that while exciting and even exhilarating, the decision can make or break one’s future.
Omari will also equip student-athletes with the Athlete For Life foundation, teaching them how to implement the Athlete For Life foundational elements for a success academic and athletic career. Creating this foundation earlier than later is critical for a student-athlete – building the platform prior to transitioning to college and entering foreign territory is paramount!
Program 3: Leadership Workshop for Coaches
Coaches blaze the trail! With experience as both a student-athlete and coach, Omari understands the paramount role coaches own in the lives of student-athletes. This two hour workshop is dedicated towards enhancing a coach’s development as a leader, mentor, and ever present figure in a student-athlete’s life.
